A mint of manly things

We were members of HSLDA for a number of years. In the late 90s they started moving in kind of weird directions. One was when they defended a soldier who had been homeschooled when he disobeyed an order to wear a UN beret and participate in a UN action. The soldier claimed that that was not a legal order and that's cool. I suppose. Whatever. My problem was why were my HSLDA membership dollars going to defend something that had nothing to do with homeschooling? And even if the HSLDA lawyers supporting the case weren't using HSLDA money to do it, why was the case featured so prominently in the HSLDA newsletter? That's when my confidence started to wane. But overall, they do a fine job of defending homeschooling which is very frequently under attack.
^^If the case is as you presented it I would think they were trying to show that their org. supports it's alumni as well as trying to dispel any media attention where the main stream media would like to bash a homs-schooler.
